The chair in Italy

C. M., Spain.

February 4, 2014

To begin this short account, I would like to explain that this Christmas I stayed in Italy, in a pied à terre rented by a friend of mine together with five other women, where they receive regular classes of Christian formation. This little apartment is normally vacant during the holidays, and my friend thought that as it was going to be my first Christmas away from home, because I’ve been studying for a Master’s degree since October last year, I could stay there, near where she lives, and have Christmas with her family. While I was there, I was impressed by the tidiness and good taste of the house and its decoration. It wasn’t showy, but clean and well cared for.

Light at the end of the tunnel

M. H., Spain

January 16, 2014

I lost my job on September 23. My whole world came crashing down. I have a six-year-old daughter, and my wife doesn’t work. I was overwhelmed with fear, anxiety and unhappiness, because I didn’t know what would become of us. I have worked since I was 16 and now I’m 40. I didn’t know what do to with myself, at home doing nothing all day, and it was worse not to be bringing in any money for the family. I went to the doctor’s and was prescribed tranquilizers and antidepressants.

The job I wanted

G. R., Panama

January 15, 2014

After doing the Novena for Work to St Josemaria several times, I managed to find a job in the area I trained for, which is quite difficult to do in the field of industrial psychology. The fact that I am Venezuelan meant people did not see me as the ideal person for this kind of job in Panama. But through St. Josemaria’s intercession God granted me the job. I am very happy because that has opened many other possibilities to me, as I am also working for a master’s degree.

Doors were opened to me

R. M., Costa Rica

January 13, 2014

I was going through a time of great turmoil when I received through the post a newsletter my Dad always used to get about the founder of Opus Dei. The postman told me to keep it as my Dad died on October 23, 2013. I opened the envelope and found the prayer to Saint Josemaria. I began praying it every morning before going to work. The situation has begun to improve and many doors that were closed to me have opened. What’s more, in my family there is more family unity and relations between us all are very good.

I have discovered St. Josemaria

A. I. V., Colombia

January 8, 2014

I am writing this testimony to thank God for the way he brought it about that I got to know St Josemaria. When my daughter was old enough to start school, I went with my husband to see several schools in our town, and quickly made our decision, for a school where we shared the values and liked the educational style. We were told that the pupils’ human and spiritual formation was based on the spirit of Opus Dei and aimed to enable each person to achieve unity of life, or overarching consistency.

At the end of 2012 I gave my uncle the Novena for Work to Saint Josemaria to pray, because it was now two years he was without work.

Dental implant

A. G., Mexico

December 21, 2013

Because of faulty dental treatment I lost several teeth on the right side. Now, years later, I had the opportunity to get false teeth to replace them. But when the dentist started to work on the implant he told me that there was a problem with a porous bone and perhaps the implant would not be successful.

After a year looking for work, I did the Novena for Work to St Josemaria and thanks to his intercession I began work two weeks ago. I have to say that it is not what I was looking for, but thank-you, because at least I know that I am in St Josemaria’s hands so he will guide me and hoping that I manage to improve my position in this job.
